The World Around You Episode 19: Utah Intrigue

Today we cover two very odd behind-the-scenes intrigue. First, the abrupt announcement of Jason Chaffetz that he won’t be running for office in 2018. In addition, rumors even suggest he might resign early from his term! (UPDATE: The day after we recorded, he revealed a surgery┬áthat would result in weeks of convalescence. This is likely a factor.) Then, we cover the sudden firing via email of the Huntsman Cancer Institute’s head, Mary Beckerle, with no reason given. We cover the backlash from staff and the Huntsman family themselves, and how it led to reinstatement only one week later. 250 million dollars hung in the balance– but neither side has made any concrete statements as to why the whole thing started!
